    We already have and are, though he didn't champion democracy (he was a capitol S Socialist). However we should not usurp the honor that goes to Americans and those who contribute significantly to America just because our POTUS wants some of the world regard a foreign dignity had to rub off on him.

    Be sure to come back and tell us what he says. You appear to be one of the few here who listen to his shows.

    Besides, this isn't about trashing Mandela, this is about a president trying to ride the world popularity coattails of a dead guy that means zero to America.

    You know, that kind of thinking may of applied a few years ago. But with as much diversity in thought that is in the republican party now, that no longer applies. There's a lot of people who never listen Rush believe it or not.

    Okay, one is primarily economic system, and the other is a political. Whether you want to admit it or not, he is the only reason there are free, democratic elections in South Africa. Hell, he was so important that he broadcasted for us several speeches on Freedom Radio Program, or w.e that was called. Can't we just honor a great man?

    I'll be the first to say I'm way over the top with many of my posts..
    I'll also say that they are responses to rightists who initiate liberal-bashing, as you say, and this Mandela business..
    I spent almost the whole day last year bashing liberals on Politico for trashing Breitbart the day he died..
    As a retired teacher, I was especially concerned with his young children..
    It's just not good enough Kobie .

    It's always about bashing Obama isn't it..
    Soon he'll be accused by the right-wing hate machine of distracting from PPACA, as we've seen from the GOP for two months..
    Feigning that over 20 million listeners aren't influenced along with the GOP House will never pass the smell test .

    This thread isn't about honoring “one of democracy's greatest leaders”; it's about honoring a murderous terrorist.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
